Hugging the tourist area of Laval to the North and the tourist area of Montérégie, to the South, Montreal is the metropolis of the province of Quebec and the second French-speaking city in the world. A dynamic and modern region that was able to preserve its biggest architectural heritage.
Contributing to the charm of this city are the various multi-ethnic neighborhoods. Thus were born "Little Italy", "Chinatown" and the Latin Quarter, to name just a few. The parks contribute to the quality of life of its inhabitants. Hence, it is not surprising that the Lafontaine Park and the Mount-Royal Park are two jewels for this cosmopolitan city.
Montreal is renown worldwide for the quality and the variety of its restaurants and for its night life. This island knows no boredom; year-round activities and events see to that.
The sports side of Montreal is impressive. Who doesn't know the Montreal Canadians Hockey Team, that boasts so many glorious moments in the past and whose nickname " the Glorious ones " remained. The Expos, Professional Baseball Team, are established at the Olympic Stadium which held the Olympic Games in 1976. The Formula 1 racing world stops in Montreal at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
